Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Add 2 cups of quick cooking oats. Cook according to directions on the box.
While water is boiling and oats are cooking, slice apple.
Place chopped apple into a bowl and add a few dashes of cinnamon, enough to cover the top layer of apples.
Add 1 teaspoon lemon juice and the brown sugar.
Mix together the apples and sweeteners.
When the oatmeal has thickened and is gently bubbling (over medium-high heat) -- drop in the apples.
Once all the apples are into the oatmeal -- Stir them in and cook for 1-5 minutes. If you want crisper apples, just cook for a minute. If you want softer apples, cook for 5 minutes. If you want medium-crispy-medium-soft apples, cook for 3 minutes. You get the idea, right?.
